Are there real benefits of Developer or Pro + memberships for a newbie web designer?

Recommended Posts

I'm coming back to graphic design after another career, and I'm now just starting to create websites for myself and others. I just designed my first Pagelines site, www.riverofgraceyoga.com, and I find Platform Pro and it's support is outstanding. So I hope to be doing sites for clients in the future using Platform Pro. Currently I have a Platform Pro single membership. I'm trying hard to understand what the real benefits for someone like me to have a Developer or a Pro +membership. On the pricing chart I see that developer status gives me: 1.)Client development and 2.) Multi-User networks. Frankly I don't understand what these things are. Could someone please explain them to me? I also saw somewhere else that it would give me access to Development themes. What are those, please? How do they differ from pageline themes? As to Pro status, I see that it grants me a bbPress forum addon, but I don't need a forum creation capability at this time. Neither do I need vectors. I'd love to dispense with the pagelines logo, but that can wait until I have more money. So what I'm left with as a benefit there Is access to all new releases for the monthly fee. Is that about it? I much appreciate your help in advance!

Hi Suerama, I think you will want to look at the developer membership for your business. The single Pro license is designed to be used by yourself to create website that you own. If you would like to develop for other clients you will need to upgrade to a Developer license to build as many sites as you want for yourself and others. If you would like to upgrade from the single Pro license you have now to the developer license you can email us at hello@pagelines.com and request an upgrade. If you buy before December 8th you will also receive a free upgrade to PageLines 2.0 when it launches next month. Cheers, -Kyle

Thanks, Kyle. I kept looking for something that states that I only have a license to do one site of my own using that license, but I did not see that anywhere. Is that clearly stated online?

also, are these explained clearly anywhere: 1.) Client development and 2.) Multi-User networks Is there a leve at which a client of mine can directly get support when I build a website for them and they are trying to customize it?
